New Jersey Devils at Buffalo Sabres: Gamethread #21

The New Jersey Devils will visit the Buffalo Sabres for the first time this season and hope to snap their three game losing streak. Members can comment here about the game within this post as it happens.

The Time: 3:00 PM EDT

The Broadcast: TV - MSG+; Radio - 660 AM & 101.9 FM WFAN

The Matchup: The New Jersey Devils (10-6-4) at the Buffalo Sabres (8-12-1)

The Game Previews: My preview from earlier this morning is right here. For the other side of this game, please check out Die by the Blade.

The Song for Today: Given the name of the opponent, The Sword is an appropriate decision for a band. This is "Iron Swan" from their album The Age of Winter. It's got more than your recommended daily amount of riffs.

Gameday Info: Tom Gulitti reported this afternoon at Fire & Ice that the lines from Friday's practice will start the game. Ryan Carter is back in and Krys Barch is out so we might see CBGB as an actual fourth line. Oh, and Buffalo's leading scorer, Thomas Vanek, isn't playing due to an undisclosed injury. That's actually rather a crucial update.

The Reminder of Rules: This is a place where you can comment about this game before, during, and after it's played before the recap is up. This is a place where we primarily discuss the Devils game. An odd mention of other NHL games is OK, but it shouldn't dominate discussion. All comments will be clean, respectful of each other, relevant to the game, and legal (read: no streams). Please do not post super-big pictures or .GIFs so the gamethread can keep moving for everyone. If you must use pictures, please put a title in the comment. Go Devils!
